Mask Straps And Chains

First, there were reusable face masks in all prints and colours. Then, came mask pouches. Now, another chapter of The New Normal is upon us. We’re talking about mask straps, which allow you to easily put on and remove your mask so you don’t have to fiddle with it when dining out. They’re also helpful in avoiding potentially awkward moments like when you forget to put your mask back on after a meal.

We first spotted them on the Korean variety show, Our Little Summer Vacation. Jung Yu Mi and Choi Woo Shik embarked on their trip to the countryside with their disposable masks dangling from mask straps. Their house guest, Park Seo Joon, was visibly intrigued when he saw one, as were we.

As it turns out, mask straps are currently trending in Korea. And similar to other trends hailing from Seoul, they’re now quickly rising in popularity across the rest of Asia. Here’s a list of places you can get mask straps and chains in Singapore, whether you prefer utilitarian straps or beaded necklaces.

Since you’re able to mix and match colours and sizes, you can get 1 each for the fam or your friends.
